Summer Reading Suggestions

Staying busy over the summer

Looking for a good book? Better yet, looking for a book  recommended by a Bates professor or staff member? Sarah Potter ’77, director of the Bates College Store, and her staff annually offer a summer reading list comprising titles suggested by Bates faculty and staff. Each list typically includes some 150 titles recommended by more than 80 members of the Bates community.

“This project reaches a wide audience: Lewiston-Auburn community members, our Web-watchers, summer program participants, parents, alumni, students, and many others,” Potter said. “The titles are always wonderful and varied, and the contributors are always quite thoughtful in their written recommendations.”
